    For my mom :)

    she is pleased it's the last quilt i am likely to piece on the machine she bought for me when i was 16. there's something poetic in that.

    beautiful work
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    A beautiful quilt for sure. I am sure you mom will be touched by your expressive appreciation for a gift she gave you when you were 16. I don't know if the machine is beyond reasonable repair or it you are moving on to greater things but it was a stepping stone. Maybe the retiring machine can continue to be a back-up for the future. I love to piece on my older machines and FMQ on my newer machines.

    It's beautiful, but I doubt I'd get rid of the machine. Sometimes older is better or more dependable. Or easier because we are so very familiar with the machine.
